Long brown oval body two antenna's two wings and a stinger

I was visiting a local park. I was standing outside of my car taking pictures so that I could show my Aunt how much the park had changed. I didn't see anything strange. I took about ten pictures.

When I got home, my Aunt and I looked at the pictures. When we came to this one particular picture we both said what is that? We saw this large bug in the sky over the softball field. It looked like a giant waterbug with a stinger on its right side. It had a large oval brown body, two bug like antenna's, two wings, and a yellow face. It appeared to have some yellow on other parts of the body. It appeared to be at least 150-200 yards in the air.

I reported later that week to the newspaper. They put an article in the paper asking for people to tell what they thought it was. Some say a hummingbird, grasshopper, drone, secret helicopter, etc.

((NUFORC Note: We believe either a grasshopper, or a praying mantiss. It appears to us to be close to the camera. PD))
